  • Incorporates advanced self-management capabilities from IBM®

  • Provides outstanding flexibility for deploying Linux® solutions with a dedicated Linux server
Product Abstract

Built on proven technology
Its a conundrum that many IT managers know all too well. How does a company build and maintain an IT infrastructure while facing evolving technology with limited budgets and multiple types of workloads. How does a company reconcile the need for high availability with security and a variety of servers, storage and software that must work together seamlessly? To help customers meet these challenges, IBM introduces the IBM eServer zSeries™ 800 (z800) servers.

As part of the IBM eServer product line, z800 servers are built on the same guiding principles that make the IBM eServer brand technologically advanced. These breakthrough servers provide new tools, innovative technology and application flexibility to help businesses lower costs, improve efficiency and expedite e-business transformation. Built on the same high security and powerhouse processing capabilities of the successful IBM eServer zSeries 900 (z900), z800 servers are specifically optimized to integrate business applications, and to meet the critical transactions and evolving demands of e-business.

The attractive price/performance of z800 servers extends the advantages of advanced zSeries technology to customers whose capacity requirements are less than those served by the z900.

Advanced design
z800 and z900 servers are designed from the ground up using key technologies from Project eLiza™, the IBM blueprint for self-managing systems. By using technology to manage technology, eLiza can help create an intelligent, self-managing IT infrastructure to minimize complexity.

This enables increased utilization of technology without the spiraling pressure on critical skills and software, as well as service and support costs.

The best example of this is the revolutionary z/Architecture™—the most extensive design effort in four decades of large-scale computing.

As the foundation of zSeries servers, the z/Architecture provides optimal flexibility in selecting, building and rapidly deploying applications across a customers e-business infrastructure, while taking advantage of zSeries availability. It is designed to keep your business up and running.

Work priority is managed by the Intelligent Resource Director that works with the z/OS™ Workload Manager and is designed to automatically allocate physical resources to the task that needs it most.


IBM zSeries 900

  • Enables superior scalability with up to 640 processors in a single cluster*
  • z/OS - a new, robust operating system based on the z-Architecture
  • LINUX for zSeries 900 supports the new 64-bit z/Architecture and extends choice in application flexibility
  • Workload Pricing reduces the cost of computing as applications grow
  • Protects and extends S/390 resources

IBM S/390 G5/G6
IBM eServer zSeries s/390

Powerful servers
Enterprise Computing is no longer just about batch jobs and transaction processing. It's about doing real business over the Internet, intranets and extranets. It's about turning the supply chain into a value chain with Enterprise Resource Planning solutions. It's about using Business Intelligence applications to help identify customer needs you never knew existed. And it's about helping you handle all this work with an affordable, manageable infrastructure. The IBM S/390 Parallel Enterprise ServerGeneration 5 and Generation 6 family can handle all these tasks concurrently in a stable, very highly secure environment that can grow easily as your business grows.

Cost-effective computing
Air-cooled CMOS processors consume less energy, require less space and can help reduce maintenance costs compared to bipolar technology replacing a water-cooled 9021-9X2 with an S/390 G5/G6 enterprise server can reduce your energy bill by up to 95% while increasing capacity significantly, can take 91%less floor space and can reduce maintenance costs from IBM by up to 70%.

Virtually unlimited capacity
The S/390 G5/G6 enterprise server family offers a vast performance range that can meet almost any growth requirements. If you've invested in previous generations of S/390 CMOS servers, easy pgrade paths are available. S/390 G5/G6 servers are a superior choice for S/390 Parallel Sysplex clustering, with enhancements that provide increased efficiency and performance.
